2009 journal article

Differences in PAH desorption and sediment organic matter composition between non-vegetated and recently vegetated fuel-oiled sediments

International Journal of Phytoremediation, 11, 463–478.

By: E. Nichols n & J. Musella*

MeSH headings : Biodegradation, Environmental; Environmental Monitoring; Fuel Oils / analysis; Geologic Sediments / chemistry; Plants / metabolism; Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons / chemistry; Water Pollutants, Chemical / chemistry
TL;DR: It is proposed that vegetation provides aliphatic, nonpolar carbon to IHC sediments that facilitates more rapid PAH desorption from bulk sediment and humin. (via Semantic Scholar)

2008 journal article

The impact of vegetation on sedimentary organic matter composition and PAH desorption


By: E. Nichols*, S. Gregory* & J. Musella*

author keywords: Phragmites; PAHs; Desorption; Sediments; Phytoremediation
MeSH headings : Adsorption; Biodegradation, Environmental; Chrysenes / analysis; Gas Chromatography-Mass Spectrometry; Geologic Sediments / analysis; Humic Substances / analysis; Plants / metabolism; Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons / analysis; Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons / pharmacokinetics; Polymers; Pyrenes / analysis; Soil / analysis; Soil Pollutants / pharmacokinetics
TL;DR: After several decades of plant colonization and growth (Phragmites australis), vegetated sediment fractions more extensively desorbed PAHs and had faster desorption kinetics than non-vegetation sediment fractions. (via Semantic Scholar)
